F314 2 Axis Loadcell

The F314 measures forces in two axes at 90°. Apart from error evaluations, each output is pure and requires no mathematical manipulation.

The loadcell is ideally suited to many industrial and scientific applications, including automotive research.

The integral spherical bearing removes the possibility of applying moments to the loadcell. If rigid fixings are required and moments are present the performance specification may be affected, our engineering department would be happy to evaluate performance changes.

The loadcell can be manufactured with force ranges to suit the application. Please consult our engineering department about the viability of the required ranges.

The example shown in the picture and drawing is a 2kN (200kgf) model; there will be small differences in the dimensions of the fixings for other ranges.

We are happy to design variants of this loadcell to meet your specific requirements. Versions can be manufactured for higher temperature operation. Please consult our engineering department.

Additional information on specifying a multi-axis loadcell can be found in Engineering Sheet E015.

Details of our other loadcell families can be found in the Product Guide.

Ordering Codes

See the loadcell ordering code sheet for more details. Add range in the required force units.

Most F314 loadcells are manufactured to special requirements and are given an F314-Zxxxx number.
